Book Blurb Friday #10---Yahoo!

         Go to Lisa Ricard Claro's blog.  Drink in the photo. Write a book "blurb" that is 150 words long, or less if you can, post it on your blog, and connect yor blurb to everyone else's via Lisa's friend, Mr. Linky.

       Oh, and don't forget to comment on the other blurbs. That's what makes BBF such fun--reading the path others took after they became inspired by the picture.

       Here is my blurb and the photo, provided by Becky Povich:

The Final Word

Bernice was a talker, hardly pausing to take a breath when she talked; she never shut up, she had a horrible case of diarrhea of the mouth---her talking just never stopped running.

Surrounded by constant noise, her husband was losing his mind. He pleaded, he prayed…but nothing would stop the juggernaut that was Bernice’s mouth.

“Let’s go to Babbler Park on Saturday,” he suggested. It was fitting, since Bernice babbled like a brook, that the end of her talking would happen there, surrounded by the noisy water flowing over the rocks…

Harold shivered, delighted with the idea of finally being cocooned in silence…Read this gripping novel to find out how their day at the park played out.

“A great addition to your DIY shelf!” Prisoner #517983, Folsom State Prison

“What Harold did worked better than duct tape!” Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor

  1. Hi Sioux,
    Twisted humor! I love it. The blurbs at the end are a nice touch.

  2. This is fun! I love the 'reviews' at the end too.

  3. I love the dark humour. Great fun, and I'm sure the book will be a good read.

  4. Sioux, you are so funny! The story was great. Diarrhea of the mouth? I also loved the recommendations at the end and your names.

    Take care,

    Kathy M.

  5. This is such fun! I loved the word play and the 'reviews'.

  6. Yes, Sioux, you are too funny. Love the reviews and laughed out loud at "Tim the Tool Man Taylor"!
    Delightful use of words. Playing with them is fun, isn't it?

    PS — my verification word here is "berniper" — do you suppose it has anything to do with the name of the intended victim?

  7. Ooo, I love that black comedy aspect. But the reviews at the end really had me giggling!

  8. I cackled so loud my husband wants to know what's so funny. This is great! Poor Harold is finally getting some respite. I think he's probably earned it. LOL

    You asked about Christina's photo of the glasses. Here's the deal: We were at the beach in Florida and Christy put the glasses on a red and black beach towel (it is actually a lady bug pattern, and I'm not sure how she gave it the blue cast). The mystery items through the lenses are seashells! Cool, huh?

  9. Loving the blurbs on your blurb!!! I suspect foul play honestly!! I live with someone who has diarrhea of the mouth and it can drive you to extreme measures!

  10. A babbling brook and a babbler? A prisoner review? LOL! What a funny take on this week's picture!

  11. This is funny. My husband calls me a babbler, so I'm curious as to what happened!

  12. omg I love the reviews!! heheh. I thought he was gonna shoot her himself for sure. Now I'm really curious what he did!

  13. I love that the husband is taking the babbler to Babbler Park...too funny! I can tell he's had enough and is going to do something - oh my, but what? Tim the Toolman Taylor's review -too much! Loved it.
